I spoke with Reggie Clemons on the phone from death row on Saturday, June 6 and his exacts words were “Praises be to Allah (God)!”
This was in response to the news he received that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit stayed his execution. Mr. Clemons originally faced an execution date of June 17, 2009 for a crime that he believes he did not commit.
But the community is not going to fall to sleep and is continuing to fight until he has his complete freedom.
A huge rally will take place in St. Louis on Saturday, June 13 at Lane Tabernacle Church (Isom Center) located at 910 Newstead (at Enright).
Guest Speakers will include:
